We often find that shopping centre cafes are always packed. We never quite understand this, for often these sorts of cafes have fairly run of the mill menus, and rather they’re popular since we all need that pick me up when we’re shopped out. However, Vine and Grind does a much more than this. It feels homely, the menu is indulgent and creative and somewhere you’d intend to visit for these reasons, not just because you’re passing by.
The cafe can be found outside BIG W in Westfield Liverpool and its contemporary light hues and floral theming is complete with walls of flowers, leather banquette seating and it is certainly spacious. It’s very popular so book ahead or put your name down, receiving a text to get your table secured. Order at the counter and food is brought to you.
Their all day menu features popular breakfast and brunch classics with a mediterranean, middle eastern and Asian influences. From a tiramisu French to toast to a yuzu hollandaise Benedict, there’s plenty great variety. You can order a larger meal, side, pastries or a combination of all. We loved their yuzu hollandaise Benedict on two slices of toast, complete with potato gems. The yuzu flavour nicely shone through.
We loved their wagyu cheeseburger, a big patty, cheese, lettuce, tomato and sauce. It comes with a small side of seasoned fries.
Their truffle club sandwich was more of a regular sandwich, a flatter style, the rye bread filled with a Panko crusted crispy schnitzel, lettuce, tomato, Mayo and drizzled with shaved Parmesan.
The truffle flavour shone brightly through. You can also add bacon and a side, we opted for sweet potato fries.
The kid menu is extensive and they also have colouring in activities for the kiddies.
There is specialty coffee on the menu; Vine and Grind use one of our favourites; ONA. We enjoyed a piccolo and an iced latte. In addition to coffees, there’s also smoothies, shakes and juices. We always enjoy their green machine juice, made with green apple, kale, celery and mint. Despite how healthy it is, it tastes good too!
